Who's all going to the state championship October 2nd & 3rd ?
Looks like those that are going so far are going to stay at the Comfort Inn in Donaldsonville. Phone # 225-264-6006 if anyone wants to make reservations. Should be a good time, they are going to feed us pulled pork after the match saturday with door prize drawings. They gave away some good stuff last year, a nightforce scope, new Kreiger 6mm barrel blank.
Just got a e-mail from Lanny down at Palo Alto, looks like they are filling the spots quick. They are going to limit it to 45 shooters. if you plan on going and have not sent your entry in let me know and I will get the SR-1 form to you.
We made it down for the practice today. We have 7 shooters competeing this week end. Bobby M. from Wayne county, William W. from Laurel, Travis W. from McComb Mstrophyhunter and son C.J. from Brandon, Mildot from Learned and myself from Raymond.
Last count there are 56 shooters signed up maybe a few walkons tomorrow. Winds today were out of the north from 5 to 10 mph. Tomorrow should be 10 to 15. All of us sited in with existing winds so should give us a good start for the morning. Not many pictures now but will try to have better shots tomorrow.
The first day of shooting is complete. Ms boys are faring well but the competition is tough. C,J. is leading overall in the F/TR with a 580-22x. The Open class the top 7 spots are only seperated by 3 points with William W. with a 593-18x followed by Mstrophyhunter with a 590-23x and myself with a 590-16x made the top seven. Below is some pictures provided by Mrs. Mstrophyhunter.
The firing line.
C.J. with F/TR Rifle
Witt sharing his secrets with Mstrophyhunter
Door prizes included was a new Nightforce scope and Kreiger barrel your choice of caliber
We neglected to get a picture of the scoreboard Sunday but this is what I know. C.J. won the f/tr class and Witt won open master class.As soon as I receive the official scores I will post them. Not sure exactly how they do the winners because the state champions are different than the winners in the classes. Witt, Mstrophyhunter, and myself shot high master average Witt was 2 points down from overall, Mstrophyhunter was down 7 points and myself was down by 8. So we gave them a run for it.
